I'm the space science producer for Discovery News, and I have a special love for solar physics, manned spaceflight and investigating the inner workings of our universe. I hold a Ph.D in Solar Physics and an M.Phys in Astrophysics. The exploration of space is an adventure; it's my job to chronicle our journey.
Yes, that's right, there's a hole in the sun, but it's not a sign of anything scary, it's actually a wonderful insight to some pretty 'cool' solar dynamics.

It might kill us, but the perchlorate-rich liquid water of Mars could be our best opportunity yet of rooting out the possibility of microbial Martian life.
